Publisher's Summary

With 1.7 million copies of the Dexter novels sold, and ever-increasing critical acclaim, Jeff Lindsay returns to his groundbreaking and beloved character with his most entertaining book yet. Get ready for a grisly send-up of Hollywood, and a full dose of dark Dexter wit.

Lights. Camera. Mayhem. You won't find this story on television.

Hollywood gets more than it bargained for when television's hottest star arrives at the Miami Police Department and develops an intense, professional interest in a camera-shy blood spatter analyst named Dexter Morgan.

Mega-star Robert Chase is famous for losing himself in his characters. When he and a group of actors descend on the Miami Police Department for "research", Chase becomes fixated on Dexter Morgan, the blood spatter analyst with a sweet tooth for doughnuts and a seemingly average life. To perfect his role, Chase is obsessed with shadowing Dexter's every move and learning what really makes him tick. There is just one tiny problem...Dexter's favorite hobby involves hunting down the worst killers to escape legal justice, and introducing them to his special brand of playtime. It's a secret best kept out of the spotlight and away from the prying eyes of bloated Hollywood egos if Dexter wants to stay out of the electric chair. The last thing he needs is bright lights and the paparazzi...but even Dexter isn't immune to the call of fame.

Jeff Lindsay's razor-sharp, devilish wit, and immaculate pacing prove that he is in a class of his own, and this new novel is his most masterful creation yet.

    "Dexter's worst cut"

    Jeff Lindsay turns Devious Dexter into a Dead-beat Daddy Dexter. Instead of taking the elements that made this series enjoyable, Lindsay turns this book into a 14 hours scathing review of Hollywood. This book shows actor Robert Craft who follows and studies Dexter so that he can play a forensic analysis in a TV show. I can't help but feel that the annoying and arrogant Craft who is trying to be like Dexter is how Lindsay feels about Michael C. Hall. Lindsay's performance in his novels is just annoying. Instead of being a dark and demonic character Lindsay's voice is sheepish and tiring. It make the character sound like the fat kid that got picked on in school.

    Good but not his best work. Looking forward to listening to Dexter is Dead. There was a lot of fluff in this book. No "real" Dexter. To be fair Lindsey may be waiting to bring it out in the next book a continuation.

    "Get the all the books"

    Dexter is very addictive and well written. Unfortunately I'm fixing to start the last one of the series. I hope Jeff keeps writing and gets us another Dexter like character.

    "Entertaining return to Dexter in written form."

    Strange to pick up the series of novels after having watched the TV series. I'd forgotten how enjoyable his inner monologue is. This is not the best book in the series, but is an enjoyable conclusion.

    "Deeply Disappointing Dexter"
    Would you try another book from Jeff Lindsay and/or Jeff Lindsay?

    This is tough, I love the "Dexter" series. Lindsay has done the character of Dexter a disservice, in this book he has made Dexter a bafoon. From a sly killer to Forest Gump.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Patient Zero


    What didn’t you like about Jeff Lindsay’s performance?

    His ability to make Dexter sound slow. Wish narrator was the original voice of Dexter.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It was deeply disappointed in Dexter. I feel cheated by the story line, and the obvious plot Dexter couldn't see his way through.

    "Dexter's disappointing let down"
    What would have made Dexter's Final Cut better?

    The whole book was disappointing , I kept waiting for the jarring places to resolve themselves.


    What could Jeff Lindsay have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Definitely given a better ending. So what, every character in the group is bleeped?


    Any additional comments?

    I was very disappointed and let down.

    "Really?!? This is how we end the series?!?"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Everything! It was predictable, slightly boring, and frankly...it seems that Jeff Lindsey just phoned this one in!


    What could Jeff Lindsay have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Made it quite a bit less anti-climatic! or Write another Dexter book that treats this one as just a bad dream!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jeff Lindsay?

    While he is a great author, he lacks a bit in the role of narrator. He speaks too fast at times and runs sentences together.


    Was Dexter's Final Cut worth the listening time?

    I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, it WAS a Dexter story. But on the other hand, it wasn't a very good Dexter story. So...it was worth a listen-but not worth a second listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Please don't leave Dexter as is with this...(what feels like) conclusion. Mr. Lindsey, you can do much better!

    "Better ending then the show"
    Any additional comments?

    The ending was very depressing, but better then the ending to the show. I wish this book had more involvement with his family because they are hilarious.

    "Missed the mark"
    Any additional comments?

    Almost from the beginning this was a disappointment. The signature sharp wittiness of the series was soft in this book, clues were so broad so early that Dexter seemed dim to have missed them so completely, logic errors-occasionally present but forgivable in other books in the series- were so glaring as to be distracting. Love the series but not this entry into it.
